How Biska Jatra is celebrated in Bhaktapur ?
Biska Jatra is one of Nepal’s most popular festivals with lots of cultural and historical significance. The Jatra has been started from the five-storied temple courtyard after worshiping the main deity of Bhairavanath and the main deity of Betal in a three-storied chariot built in pagoda style according to Tantric method.
The three-storey chariot of Bhairavnath built in the local Toumadhi area is celebrated by local people by stretching the ropes placed in front and back of the chariot and pulling the Kwane (lower) area and the Thane (upper) area to celebrate the Jatra.
Locals pull ropes in front of the chariot and try to take it to their villages. By pulling the chariot in this way, wherever the chariot can be taken to the lower or upper tol, that tol is considered victorious.
Chariot pulling is the main attraction of this Jatra. It is a tradition that the first day’s journey ends after the chariot is taken to the local Gahhiti village.
